L.A Noire Nicholson Electroplating Review

Nicholson Electroplating Disaster, is the first L.A Noire DLC that Rockstar put out. The case is base on the real world O'Connor Electro-Plating plant explosion, that killed 17 people in 1947, but the developer, Team Bondi, changed the facts of the case to fictionalize it. Like the two pre order DLC, A Slip of the Tongue and The Naked City, Nicholoson Electronplating is a diversion from the plot, which is woven into the all of the cases. If you chose to skip out on this adventure, you wouldn’t be missing anything vital. What would you would be missing an intriguing case with some of the best action scenes in the game.  

Nicholson Electroplating picks up right after you complete A Polite Initiation at the Arson desk, the best case in the game. You once again play as Cole Phelps who is having a conversation with Herschel Biggs, your partner while you’re at Arson. An explosion occurs sprouting a giant mushroom that clouds the city of Los Angeles.  In L.A Noire Style, You and Biggs sift through the wreckage to determine who caused the blast. As you would expect, the gameplay is mostly the same from the original game. But these are some of the most challenging clues to find and can be easily overlooked. One of the main problems that people will have with this latest DLC pack is that it won’t take you that long to beat it. It took me thirty minutes to get 100% on Nicholson Electroplating Disaster. The graphics, audio and gameplay are still top notch and what you expect from Rockstar.

While I thought Nicholson Electroplating Disaster was a little on the short side, I still enjoyed my time with it. L.A Noire is one of my favorite games this year and im glad this DLC allowed me to experience something new in the game. This is a must have, if you are a fan of L.A Noire and Rockstar games. If you don’t have the L.A Noire Pass, spend the four dollars for a great experience you sure will to enjoy.
